Washington State's GOP-Republican-TeaParty U.S. Senate candidate is who?
The BIAW no-Label gubernatorial candidate of 2008 is making a stronger run for the U.S. Senate now with unlabeled, undisclosed out-of-state donors with unlimited dollars. He's not got an un-bought bone in his body! His two biggest ad buys in 2008 falsely accused his opponent (1) of being "bribed" by campaign contributions and (2) of allowing convicted sex offenders to roam unregistered and secretly about the State - a matter that citizen Rossi has done nothing about except remain silent for the two years since votes were cast that November.
[If he'd traced the foreign source of his bogus claim then, he should have been ashamed to have used them even for constructing their myth in his mind - and all the more so for ads. (See China Daily (Beijing), "US Human Rights Violations Exposed;" March 13, 2008. Also, IOCSC Report text, Part IV.)]
Now his Karl Rove ads suggest that Patty Murray was President for eight of the 18 years she's been "in Washington - those 8 years that Rove was the "brains" in the White House and the nation's deficits and deficit spending ballooned to their highest levels above a collapsed economy beneath them. Democrats have controlled both Houses of Congress for only six of the 18 years that Patty has been there, including her first two.
The crushing deficits of the past decade resulted primarily from two unpaid-for wars coupled with the inherently unequal "across the board" tax cuts of the first Rove Administration. A misapplied political dogma that "a rising tide raises all boats" should not so easily bamboozle the populace of a maritime state. Anchor all boats against the tide in deep water - and see which boats can best bear the burden of "equal" ("across the board") amounts of water seeping in. The smallest and medium boats will all sink before the largest boats are even threatened!
Rather than be sunk in the wake of boundless Rove money to buy another vacant mind and empty vessel in "this Washington" to send to "the other Washington" to do the donors' bidding - wake up, Washington voters! The Republican "economy" is that "anchor." Rove's target "empty vessel" is used to being bought. Just don't let his donors' money buy you.
Eighteen years in Washington? Patty Murray's has had to fight against some pretty hard odds in most those years to keep on fighting for the people of Washington State - and with a high degree of success!
If Rossi doesn't know that Bob Dole, Trent Lott and Bill Frist combined for ten years of Senate majority control in that period - nearly as long as the 12 year continuous Speakerships of Newt Gingrich and Dennis Hastert in the House - he scarcely qualifies to join that body, except by mere age and citizenship.
Certainly he doesn't qualify by civic intelligence or near past historical knowledge. Few things would be more damaging to the country than joining banker Rossi with Mitch O'Connell in their cynical design for a perpetual filibuster to retard the true business of the nation in the United States Senate.
